I had the same problem and took it to the dealer who told me there was a part recall and fixed it for free.

It was the Hazard Light Switch that was faulty on mine..... Try hitting the dash ( directly above the switch) when it messes up next time. There were bad connections on these switchs. $30 for a new switch.

Try wiggling the turn signal switch lever around a bit the next time this happens as you may have a failing multi-function switch. If you can get it to work by doing so then it's most likely the switch that is going bad. You could have a bad wire in the column leading up to the switch but I've replaced a few switches to fix the symptoms you are describing. Hope this helps a bit!

Signal lights only work intermittenly


The blinker relay is getting worn out. It's right behind the hazard lights switch. Pull off the black trim around the radio, hazard, ets, and the relay is write there. Next time the blinkers stop working hit the hazard button or hit the trim just above the hazard lights button. Mines been doing it off and on and I just hit the trim above the hazard button and they start blinking again. Never have time or remember to get a new relay.

Turn signal flasher location 2003 suzuki XL-7


the FSM book covers this.
as does alldata.com, (USA cars)
checked fuses yet?
turn/back fuse.
feeds the.:
turnback relay & answer back relay (module)
a digital switch in the lever (combo) it just sends ground logic
level to the module.
so sound to me to be
one light is shorted. (or trailer wire hacks) "visual inspections!,"
or the module is bad.
if both sides are bad, seems bad module to me,
if all lights blink fully bright on hazard the lights should be good.

the module is just under the steering wheel , under those
plastic covers, the books shows simple access. to the combo
my book dont show module location
i use a rubber hose to my ear to find any relay, clicks.
if you find hazard click , (assuming it does) then same place
is the turn sigs.
its not in the fuse box, cab , i looked.


hope that helps.

alldata.com
has it.

After using turn signal you can still hear clinking, is hazard relay part of turn signal


The hazard switch is also the device that supplies the turn signal "flash". If you continue to hear the noise of the turn signal flashing when the turn signals off than the problem is the turn signal switch. It is grounding The purple wire from the hazard switch which makes the hazard switch think the turn signal is on. The fix for this is to relace the turn signal/multi-function switch. Typically they will start to go bad in stages. Your symptom is the first stage. Eventually either the turn signals or the brake lights will also sto working. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

We have a buick lesabre 1993. The blinkers quit working. The emergency flashers and all lights work. What could be the problem?


There should be two flasher relays.The one for the turn signals probably is bad.The easiest way to find it would be to turn on the hazards and listen to where the clicking is coming from.Track that down and the other flasher is usually next to it or within a few inches of it. As long as the hazard flasher is working you can remove that one and put it in the turn signal one just to verify that is the issue.If that corrects the issue you will need to purchase a flasher relay.

92 caprice classic turn signals not working, but the bulbs are fine. Hazards, brakes, etc all work fine. Any ideas?


Yes, the problem is the turn signal flasher is defective. You can has two flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. That is why the hazard lights flash and the turn signals do not. Replace the turn signal flasher relay located on the drivers side of the steering column, mounted behind the instrument cluster in the convenience center. They are both mounted in the same location so turn on the hazard lights and the one that you put your finger on that is not clicking is the turn signal relay.

I have a 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis the turn signals, brake lights, and turning lights do not work. The running lights and hazard lights do work. I checked the bulbs and the relay can for the turn signals...


Turn signal switch (also brake light canceling switch) most likely bad or bad wire to it or from it. Check, with key on run, for power into switch. Turn switch on, check for power out. No power out switch bad. Power out, trace to rear tailight harness for broken wire.

The turn signals and hazard lights quit working temporarily


About the only thing that would cause both the turn signals and hazard lights not to work at the same time would be the flasher relay.
